    A solid run on a cool fall morning. I did 8 miles in the Kinvara, 8 in the PureCadence, then the rest in the Kinvara. I may have stumbled on part of the problem with the GPS accuracy of the Garmin ... read more

      (continued...) On this scale you see patterns that are lost in more detailed studies and gain a new perspective on our place in the world. I can see why Bill Gates has started a project to promote teaching of Big History, as it can transform perspectives. This is the course that Bill watched on his treadmill, so it's nice to know the rich and famous also combine running and education. (The presenter talks a bit faster than most, so I only needed to up-tempo this up by 40%)

    I've added a review of the Saucony Virrata, a nice, lightweight, well cushioned shoe that’s reasonably priced. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Saucony_Virrata

    • Jonathan S.
      Jonathan S.

      (continued) It’s a little firmer than the Altra One2 or the Mizuno Cursoris and not such a good shape, but the price makes up for a lot. The Virrata 2 is virtually identical to the original version. After a while I managed to spot a couple of minor cosmetic changes, but that’s it.

      A good take on a good shoe. Unfortunately, Saucony is discontinuing the Virrata line, but they should be around for a little while.

      As somewhat of a footcare professional, this idea seems very very dangerous. Unless you spend all of your time on your feet with a similar dynamic or configuration, selectively doing this for running/impact activity seems like an excellent opportunity for injury almost anywhere along the kinetic chain.

      Well, the alternatives are to build up a shoe so it's thicker, which would give different weights, cushioning, etc., or to run in the same shoes and have uneven length legs, which also causes lot of problems.

      Depending on the severity of the leg length discrepancy (if indeed it is a leg length discrepancy and not a hip or spinal issue) one could add a thin blown rubber wedge to the short leg's shoe and add thickness over time and many miles. I'd start with 1/8th inch max and add additional 1/8ths over a series of weeks or months. Contact me back channel if you need assistance with this.

      For folks with more than a minor discrepancy, I don't think lifts are viable. I see that as changing the biomechanics more than different shoes.
